I am 63 and have CKD gfr22 but I went searching for the median gfr of a healthy 63 year old woman so I could compare the number.
I googled, normal gfr by age, the site is Kidney-international.org. I wish I could make these computer gadgets sing in French like my kids can and I would give you a link but I have no idea how to do that so I will give you as much information as I am able. So very sorry, I can Google and do research but don't know how to share.
What I found was a study done in the Netherlands of healthy Caucasians. Just keep that in mind because my lab reports give a gfr for Blacks and a different gfr for Other. Which means someone other than black? I think. Anyway, this study was done on 1660 males between the ages of 18-90 years of age. 2072 females between the ages of 18-90 years of age. Included 869 males and females over the age of 65.
Age. Median gfr. range
35-39. 79. 66-92
40-44. 77. 65-89
50-54. 73. 60-86
60-64. 68. 56-80
65-69. 66. 56-76
70-74. 66. 55-77
75-79. 62. 51-73
80-84. 64. 50-78
Over 85. 59. 45-73
I just picked some ages but on the site they do cover all of them. Dang I wish I could share that site, the article is AWESOME!
As some of you my know, I also have arthritis and
Lupus and I am going through a real tough time, hurts pretty bad to type, I know there are many mistakes and I'm sorry. I'm also sorry that I have to give myself a break and come back to give you the numbers for the males. I really am sorry guys.
